Naughty by Nature will celebrate the 25th anniversary of its self-titled debut album in 2016. And to mark the occasion, it is giving away free downloads of the album and of a 28-track collection of remixes and other rarities.
But there’s a catch: The offer is only good for 25 hours, from noon Dec. 30 to 1 p.m. Dec. 31.
To get the download, visit naughtybynature.com/25th-anniversary and sign up for the group’s newsletter. You will then be sent an email that will have the links for the downloads.
The group has also announced a 25th Anniversary Tour, Jan. 27- Feb. 28, with stops including Webster Hall in New York on Feb. 27 and the Theater of Living Arts in Philadelphia on Feb. 28, but no Jersey dates.
All three original group members, rappers Treach and Vin Rock and DJ Kay Gee, will participate. Treach and Vin Rock feuded several years ago, and Treach announced, in 2013, that Vin Rock had been fired from the group. But apparently everything has been resolved.
Based in East Orange, the group had its biggest hit, “O.P.P.,” on that debut album, as well as smaller hits “Everything’s Gonna Be Alright” and “Uptown Anthem.”
